President Quang congratulated the Cambodian people on the major achievements they have obtained over the recent past while hailing the King’s role in national reconciliation and development.

The two leaders concurred to closely coordinate in launching activities marking the 50 th anniversary of bilateral diplomatic ties (June 24, 1967).
Greater attention will be given to educating young people about the solidarity and traditional friendship between the nations, while increasing the exchange of all-level delegations, especially between their border localities and citizen, they said.
